Throw pillows can completely alter the tone and change the feel of the room without requiring massive changes. It’s one of the easiest and safest ways to go bold or just change things up in any room of your house.

Pick the Right Color

When adding a pop of color to a room selecting the right color palette is crucial. The pillows can be in the same shade or use complimentary colors. Adding mismatched pillows can create visual chaos. Instead, the pillows should add a consistent feel through out the room. Adding throw pillows works best in a room with a lot of neutrals, which creates a contrasting impact.

Start Small

Picking colors for your accent pillows can initially be challenging. Try starting simply by adding throw pillows to your bedroom. It’s an area few guests will see when you’re entertaining, but will allow you to experiment with different color combinations and get comfortable picking colors. It’s a great place to figure out your personal style. Once you’re ready to move on, you can start adding pillows to more heavily trafficked areas, like the living room!

Go Bold

Not afraid to go a little more bold? A pop of color can have a massive impact on a room and add a sense of vibrance often missing from neutral themed spaces. More adventurous spirits should try red, purple or yellow accent pillows. These colors will jump right out of a neutral colored room!

Just remember, you can tie your pillow colors in with other items in the room, such as lighting fixtures, rugs, artwork, and accessories. Pillows are just the beginning! Once you’ve mastered the art of the accent pillow the possibilities are endless.
